Constitutive equations of plasticity which usually do not include a yield condition and do not separate the elastic and inelastic strains during the overall material response are considered unified. This monograph presents a unified plasticity theory based on the material models elaborated by Rodner and Partom during the past 30 years. The theory does not require yield criterion or loading and unloading conditions. Considering small strains, the elastic and inelastic strain rates are supposed to be additive and generally non-zero at all stages of loading and...
